Moment of Truth

Lisa Scottoline (Author)
Backorder (temporarily out of stock)


When attorney Jack Newlin discovers his wife dead in their home, he's convinced he knows who killed her--and is equally determined to hide the truth. He decides to frame himself for murder, and to seal his fate he hires the most inexperienced lawyer he can find: a reluctant rookie by the name of Mary DiNunzio from the hot Philadelphia firm of Rosato & Associates. But hiring Mary may turn out to be his biggest mistake. She doubts Jack's confession, and her ethics and instincts tell her she can't defend a man who wants to convict himself. Smarter, gutsier, and more persistent than she has any right to be, Mary sets out to prove what really happened--because, as any lawyer knows, a case is never as simple as it seems. And nothing is ever certain until the final moment of truth.
